Jimmy Somerville Unable to Perform Due to Illness

24.7.2007

Jimmy Somerville will not be able to perform at Reykjavik Gay Pride due to continued illness. Unfortunately he have had to cancel 10 shows in the last months due to illness, more specifically  problems with Jimmy's voice.


In a E-mail to Reykjavik Gay Pride his agent say: "Jimmy has had severe problems with his throat, voice and vocal chords for the last two months and has been advised he must not sing until they are fully healed to avoid permanent damage - we had hoped the problem would rectify itself but after ongoing consultations I'm afraid it has not  improved at all and it has now been diagnosed as a long term problem. Jimmy has been advised total rest from singing for the next three months. I am now cancelling all performances until further notice."

"Albeit to say he is very disappointed and frustrated not to be able to perform"

We wish Jimmy well and hope for quick and good recover.
